OTTAWA - There are a multitude of reasons the Flyers will miss the playoffs for just the third time in the last 20 seasons. At the top of the list: the team's road miseries, which continued Sunday night with a 2-1 shootout loss to the Ottawa Senators at the Canadian Tire Centre. Bobby Ryan, the pride of Cherry Hill, was the only player to score in the shootout as Ottawa continued its impressive run toward a possible playoff berth. The Senators, 11-1-1 in their last 13 games, moved to within five points of Boston for the Eastern Conference's final playoff spot.

OTTAWA - Jake Voracek slowed to a crawl, worming his way in on Andrew Hammond in the shootout. He beat the "Hamburglar," the hottest goaltender in the NHL, but was robbed by the post. Nine times out of 10, his shot - which hit the inside of the post - would have clanked into the net. On this night, it clanked out - and Voracek could do little more than look toward the Canadian Tire Centre rafters in disbelief. It's just been that type of season for Voracek. When he scores, the Flyers lose.

OTTAWA - Nick Cousins brought his mother to tears of joy. After he played for the AHL's Phantoms on Saturday night, the 5-foot-11, 188-pound center phoned his parents and told them the good news: He had been recalled by the Flyers. "It was crazy. I usually call them after every game and talk about the game," he said on Sunday. "I called them and I think they were even more excited than I was. I think my mom was even crying. " Cousins, the AHL's fifth-leading scorer with 55 points, was recalled because winger R.J. Umberger is out for the season with several injuries.

Eleven seconds into the third period, hundreds of hats were thrown onto the ice after Flyers center Brayden Schenn apparently scored the first hat trick of his career. As it turned out, Schenn will have to wait to accomplish the feat. The fans didn't seem to mind. They got to watch the Flyers continue their surprising domination of the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center. Flyers 7, Red Wings 2. Seconds after Schenn scored his "third" goal, Lou Nolan announced that his first goal had been changed and was being credited to Wayne Simmonds.

There is a positive to the Flyers' falling out of playoff contention: They now will be part of the Connor McDavid sweepstakes. By all accounts, McDavid, a speedy 6-foot, 195-pound center, is a franchise cornerstone, a player who is being compared to (gulp) Sidney Crosby. Thanks to their Great Meltdown Against League Lightweights, the Flyers will be in the April draft lottery. They have the league's eighth-worst record, and if they stay there, they would have a 6 percent chance to get the No. 1 overall pick.

For most of the season, Flyers winger R.J. Umberger has seemed slow and out of sync. The reason became clear Saturday. Umberger, 32, will undergo surgery Wednesday on his right hip and abdominal muscles, the Flyers announced. General manager Ron Hextall said that Umberger had two cam lesions in his right hip, and added that it's not unusual for players to play through that type of injury. The Flyers knew about the condition, Hextall said, when they acquired Umberger and a 2015 fourth-round draft pick from Columbus last June for Scott Hartnell.

When the Flyers have played on the road this season, things have gone so badly for Steve Mason that even when he registers a shutout he is the losing goalie. It happened Thursday in St. Louis, where Mason put together another sensational performance but once again was the victim of the Flyers' offensive ineptitude in a 1-0 shootout loss. Mason, who is among the NHL leaders in save percentage (.925, tied for fifth) and goals-against average (2.26, 10th), has more road shutouts (two)

Bobby Kiefer turned to his left and looked to head up ice. The Downingtown East senior took two strides before losing an edge. Instead of trying to regain his balance, Kiefer threw both arms forward and slid on his stomach. This was as good a way as any to celebrate a Flyers Cup championship. Earlier, he had slammed home a one-timer to give East a two-goal lead with less than four minutes to go and sealed a 4-1 win over North Penn Friday night in the Flyers Cup Class AA final at Hatfield Ice Arena.

LUKE SCHENN was curious. During the first intermission on Tuesday night, he asked his brother Brayden whether he managed to get a stick on Luke's point shot from the first minute of the game that found its way through Kari Lehtonen. Brayden was given credit for the goal. Coach Craig Berube even praised him postgame for tipping the puck. Luke wasn't sure. Brayden barely celebrated, later confirming to his brother that he never touched it. Rather than petition the official scorers to change the goal back to him, as some hungry goal scorers are wont to do, Luke didn't say a word.
